Too Bad Typepad Doesn't Have a Scratch and Sniff Feature
I wish you could smell these.
I love wisteria. It is actually an aggressive, invasive plant. It could even pull my deck down. But just look at those lovely blooms and the smell, ah, the smell. Heavenly.
I made some socks that remind me of this pretty plant.
The yarn is Sundara, that Keohinani sent to me when she was my KSKS pal. The stitch pattern is one that I made up. I wanted something that would add a subtle texture and break up the pooling on variegated yarns. It is a waffle texture of sorts.
Now I'm trying the pattern on some strongly variegated yarn. The new yarn is hot fuchsia, brown and orange. The look is totally different, but interesting. It almost has a tie-dyed effect. I should have something to show in a few days.
Yeah, I know DD#2 needs to put some lotion on those knees. Dry skin runs in the family.
Don't forget to sign up for the Spun Stitches KAL. We are spinning yarn to knit a shawl. All levels of spinners are welcome. Challenge yourself!
